  • The family of a former chief X-ray technologist donated a plaque in his honor to Carroll County Memorial Hospital.

    Melissa (Marlette) Hazelwood presented the plaque to the hospital’s chief executive officer, Kanute Rarey, in honor of her father, Joe Marlette. 

    Marlette retired from the hospital in 1999 after a 36-year career. He started out as an orderly and a lab technician, eventually, rising to chief X-ray technologist in the radiology department.

  • Volunteering is the sense of carrying out tasks or providing services for individuals or community organizations without being paid to promote good or improve human quality of life. There is absolutely no way that the 4-H program can be successful without the help of volunteers.

  • The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service administers the Environmental Quality Incentives Program, a federal program that provides technical and financial assistance to land users to address natural resource concerns. NRCS is asking for local input for the fiscal year 2013 program.

  • What would Thanksgiving be without the turkey? Traditionally, many of us plan our entire holiday dinner around turkey. That’s a lot of pressure on one bird.

    It is now only one day before Thanks-giving so frozen turkeys should probably be thawing. If you purchased a fresh turkey, it should be kept in the refrigerator until ready to roast.  

    The big thaw
